Bashiran is 57 years old and lives with her spouse and seven children in the area of Lahore, Pakistan.
Her husband has been running a small shop selling fruits and vegetables for many years in a nearby town and generates a reasonable income. With the passage of time, inflation increases day by day but the sources of income remain constant. To increase income, Bashiran's husband wants to his enterprise to progress. He lacks money to purchase more inventory on a daily basis. He tried to borrow some money from his friends and relatives but nobody helped him.
Therefore, Bashiran has requested a loan for her husband so that he would be able to buy additional fruits and vegetables to sell.
Bashiran thanks Kiva and field partner BRAC Pakistan.
